Numerous of those bullets could alone justify an upgrade from the M6 Mark I.
For example, the twice-as-fast (with AF) continuous shooting frame rate.
Eye AF is alone worth the price of the camera to those photographing people with any frequency.
Do much video work?
The 4k feature is noteworthy.
Want higher resolution or more reach with the lenses you currently have?
The increased sensor resolution is going to be noticeable.
As with most model upgrades, price remains the primary feature advantage of the previous camera version.

Few are going to find a reason (other than price) to go with the 80D over the 90D.

The last two points MAY be a matter of it being pre-production… don’t have documentation from Japan to confirm or deny, but thought I’d mention it. At this stage of pre-production, I wouldn't’ be surprised if actual production cameras behave the same way as my sample camera.
Two of the keys that make RAW burst possible are the use of a DIGIC 8 processor, and most importantly, faster read-out speeds of the new 32.5 MP image sensor (while still allowing Dual Pixel CMOS AF to be carried out).
As a practical matter, at least judging from my pre-production sample camera, this feature is VERY sensitive to SD card write speed. A SanDisk UHS-I card, rated at 95 MB/sec, was not sufficient to record anything close to 80 straight images, and the little vertical buffer “scale” on the LCD monitor appeared almost immediately as shooting began. In other words, users should expect to use fast, UHS-II cards to really get the most out of this feature. Fortunately, unlike previous EOS M-series models, the M6 Mark II **is** compatible with UHS-II cards!
Thanks for sharing, Rudy!
